LSP20-British Invasion 

Rock and Roll from Across the Pond

We all know the Beatles changed the game when it comes to rock and roll- but let’s not forget all the other great bands who swept onto our shores from across the pond! There was a shift in the musical culture in the mid-1960’s when mop-topped rockers from across the Atlantic began to rule the airwaves. Saluting hit-makers such as Herman’s Hermits, The Animals, The Rolling Stones, the Dave Clark Five and many more- this is one invasion you won’t want to resist!
